  • Summary

    Cook it once, eat it twice: this is a crave-worthy dinner with extras that quickly transform into tomorrow’s lunch. That’s thanks to special added ingredients that can easily be heated up, even at the office (your coworkers will be amazed, trust us). For the first meal, you’ve got a pesto-y pasta with chicken thighs and a dash of Parmesan. The next day, it becomes a pesto chicken sandwich on baguette, with slices of fresh tomato to keep things lively. *The nutrition facts panel represents the nutrient values for the Chicken and Pesto Pasta Dinner.
